Synopsis

From the awardwinning author of No One Is Here Except All of Us comes an imaginative novel about a wealthy New England family in the 1960s and 70s that suddenly loses its fortuneand its bearings. Labor Day 1976, Marthas Vineyard. Summering at the family beach house along this moneyed coast of New England, Fern and Edgarmarried with three childrenare happily preparing for a family birthday celebration when they learn that the unimaginable has occurred: there is no more money. More specifically, theres no more money in the estate of Ferns recently deceased parents, which, as the sole source of Fern and Edgars income, had allowed them to live this beautiful, comfortable life despite their professed anti-money ideals. Quickly, the once-charmed family unravels. In distress and confusion, Fern and Edgar are each tempted away on separate adventures: she on a road trip with a stranger, he on an ill-advised sailing voyage with another woman. The three children are left for days with no guardian whatsoever in an improvised Neverland helmed by the tender, witty, and resourceful Cricket, age nine. Brimming with humanity and wisdom, humor and bite, and imbued with both the whimsical and the profound, Sons and Daughters of Ease and Plenty is a story of American wealth, class, family, and mobility approached by awardwinner Ramona Ausubel with a breadth of imagination and understanding that is fresh, surprising, and exciting.
